eBay is where I really learned what I want to do with my career personally and how much I can accomplish professionally. I felt like my opinion mattered from Day 1 here.

I joined FFP in 2019 and was an intern in 2018. eBay is in a super innovative space and surrounded by a lot of other high-growth tech companies, but what sets eBay apart is its continued longevity and its purpose. eBay helps empower individuals and small businesses to expand their markets – when eBay sellers win, we win – and I think that is hugely motivating and uncommon in the tech sphere. Also finance plays a larger role in maintaining healthy business metrics, which is a great learning opportunity for someone straight out of school in an industry that typically doesn’t emphasize finance quite as much.

I am currently on my 2nd rotation and working on the Global Revenue Controlling team, which oversees everything revenue related across all countries and sites. I help reconcile the books every month to ensure an accurate reporting of eBay revenue across all platforms. I also help with transitioning revenue related processes to include fee-netting/bundling in the various rollout stages.

The FFP is great because your managers push you and encourage you to push yourself – If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not stretching enough! My advice for those presented with an opportunity to join a program like the FFP is to absolutely try it! There’s no harm in applying, and there’s no better place to learn about yourself. Even if you’re not sure that you’ll like all three buckets in your rotations (finance, controlling, analytics), it’s still great learning for both your professional development and your personal preferences.

What I love about eBay is its potential to help small businesses thrive; it empowers individuals to improve their life every day.

I’ve been with eBay for 3 years and I recently joined the Analytics Leadership Development Program (ALDP) because it is an opportunity to not only advance my career ambitions by improving my leadership ability, but it is pushing me to improve on an individual level. The program immerses me into a broad network of people and projects. I believe this is a perfect environment for me to focus on building myself as I build my career.

1st rotation - Payments Finance, San Jose, CA: I worked on the Payments initiative supporting monetization. I built tools to make sure we deliver on eBay’s goals and promises to investors. It was a fascinating rotation with huge impacts on the business.

2nd rotation - eCG Analytics, Berlin, Germany: I developed a machine learning model to predict when transactions occur across eCG sites. Without such a model we can’t be certain when a transaction is happening on classifieds platforms. Understanding transactions is a basic tool for understanding customer success. This was a challenging and rewarding rotation.

3rd rotation - Buyer Insights, Bern, Switzerland: I am now on my third rotation in Bern, Switzerland. I am currently working on understanding eBay buyer behavior. Specifically, I am looking into opportunities to delight the customer, sizing these opportunities, and working to develop strategies to execute.

My advice to anyone considering joining a leadership development program would be to consider all the aspects of this program. The program can help you from multiple angles: leadership development, networking, skillset growth, opportunities to broaden your worldview through travel, and understanding the business deeper. Talk with your manager and tell them you’re interested. That will be an empowering discussion as you and your manager work out a path for you to be ready for this program. Don’t be afraid of your weaknesses, embrace them; work on them, put them in the open. Own who you are and then get to work on creating the future you want.

eBay is the first company that I have worked for where making a profit is not the end all. The balanced view of making a profit to continue our values and mission, along with the culture we have built up, makes waking up and coming to work enjoyable. I truly believe that eBay makes a difference with our buyers, sellers and our employees. I have a wonderful team and great peers to continue my eBay journey. What more can I ask for?

I joined eBay in 2005 and was drawn to eBay because it was in a completely different industry and business model to my previous employers. I was also excited about the opportunity to join the eBay APAC team which was just in the process of forming. Above all, after spending numerous years of working in the enterprise software industry where the focus year to year was squeezing out more profit, eBay’s business model of enabling a level playing field for smaller businesses and individuals and contributing to betterment of our society was extremely attractive. It also helped that I was an avid early user of eBay despite being based out of Seoul, Korea at the time!

— James M., VP & CFO, eBay APAC & Off-Platform Markets

My career started 30+ years ago when I initially studied Electrical Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara before realizing I did not want to be an engineer sitting behind a screen all day. I graduated with a degree in Business Economics and went to work at one of the Big-4 firms, focusing on pre-IPO tech start-up companies because of my knowledge in technology. International experience was always fascinating to me and I was presented an opportunity at another tech company working in Internal Audit focusing on international business covering Asia and Europe. It was at this point I was presented with an opportunity to join eBay APAC on a new regional team based in Seoul, Korea. I was one of the first members of the APAC team. I have been in my current role for all my time at eBay and enjoy the diversity and different challenges that come every year.

To dive in deeper for what I do - I am responsible for all aspects of the finance function for eBay Off-Platform and Rest of World markets. This includes FP&A, Controlling, Analytics and Joint Venture advisory. While my team is not directly responsible for customer facing experience, our job besides the basic finance reporting and controlling function, is to maximize and optimize resource allocations so that our business units are making the best decision for our customers and eBay. The markets in my region are at various stages of business, and I believe it is my teams’ responsibility to communicate the differences of our region to corporate.
